Institute for Intelligent Systems

The Institute for Intelligent Systems is an interdisciplinary enterprise comprised of researchers and students from the fields of computer science, mathematics, cognitive psychology, physics, neuroscience, education, linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, engineering, and business. Intelligent systems differ from conventional technologies in that they are fast, dynamic, flexible, and adaptive. Researchers in the IIS have developed technologies in the cutting-edge areas of cognitive science, artificial intelligence, complex dynamic systems, neural networks, evolutionary modeling, massively parallel systems, and biological systems.


Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center

Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center (PSLC) supports research on robust learning and is creating a research facility, LearnLab. Learnlab is a facility designed to dramatically increase the ease and speed with which learning researchers can create the rigorous, theory-based experiments that pave the way to an understanding of robust learning. Run jointly by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, LearnLab makes use of advanced technologies to facilitate the design of experiments that combine the realism of classroom field studies and the rigor of controlled theory-based laboratory studies.
